Robots

Have you seen Robots? I just did. I am happy. I think I may have disturbed the neighbours by laughing too loudly. There was so much imagination squeezed into every frame that I think I have to see it again. It had all sorts of clever ideas, fantastic warpings of technology, beautiful imagery, references to other films – the John Woo moment was very, very funny – and fast dialogue, all packed into a very fast 90 minutes. I was trying to figure out the voices, but things happened so fast that I didn’t pick up on many. I thought I recognised a recurring cameo (Ratchet’s father) but decided I must be wrong, then checked the credits and found it was indeed Terry Wogan. Which was surreal, but amusing. I found the film charming and really rather wonderful. Highly recommended by me.
